The We-Act measure is an observation and performance-based assessment designed to assess the extent to which frontline education, child protection, and psychosocial support workers in humanitarian settings have adequate competencies to provide effective support to children. In it its current form, it is intended to provide data for program monitoring and evaluation purposes, although future testing will evaluate its suitability for use as a screening measure.
